The Parish church of Todber, Dorset (dedication unknown)


The parish church, dedication unknown, was rebuilt, with the exception of the tower, in 1879, by Elizabeth Marchioness of Westminster, on the old site, in the Early English and Perpendicular styles: it consists of chancel, nave, vestry, and a tower containing 2 bells, dated 1736-7, one of which was recast in 1879: there is a memorial window to the Rev. Richard Pratt M.A. for 17 years curate of this church and Stour Provost, d. 1878: the communion table is formed of the ancient altar stone, supported on massive pedestals of oak: the oak pulpit is a simple but elegant work of the Caroline period: the octagonal font is surmounted by a carved oak cover.
